Road closed for five hours after motorist killed

A MOTORIST has been killed in a serious crash on the A12.

A MOTORIST was killed in an horrific accident on the A12 which left one carriageway closed for more than seven hours and tailbacks of up to five miles.

It is believed that three cars were involved in the incident with one of the vehicles colliding with the central reservation barrier.

Two people were also taken to hospital as a result of the accident which happened on the southbound carriageway at the Boreham Interchange, near Chelmsford, at about 5.30pm.

A spokesman for Essex Police said last night it was too early to reveal the victim’s gender, their age, or whether they were from the local area.
